Frogzilla, the Pet of the Day
Name: Frogzilla
Age: Three years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Amazonian Horned Frog
Home: Houston, Texas, USA
   My frog is special because he is one of the most exotic looking horned frogs. He is three inches long and eats mice and fish, and would enjoy eating other frogs if allowed to. He spends 2/3 of his time underground in his terrarium and only comes out for water and food. He is also one of the rarest horned frogs available in the pet trade today.

    He is special because he is rare as far as frogs go and was imported - from the Guyanas most likely. He doesn't really know his name, but will croak whenever I turn on the music. His care is difficult, as they require high humidity and temperatures and do not fare well in captivity under a novice's care. He has a great personality as he sits and watches stuff waiting for food and perks up whenever he sees food. That seems to be his pastime: waiting from meal to meal.
